fit for a real garden artist

Gregg's mom celebrated her birthday today. She loves to spend time in her garden. Thus, this garden artist apron was perfect for her.

(geez iron much?)

This project is in Simple Sewing with a French Twist. The book requires you to take all small pattern pieces found in the back pages and enlarge them at a place like Kinkos, no thanks what a pain, but I found this pattern that gave measurements to make the apron instead. So I did that but followed the books instructions the rest of the way. It just needed a brooch to dress it up a bit.

We grouped it with some new gloves and tulip bulbs.

Happy Birthday Karen! I think Lilly said it best after we got off the phone with you this evening "we all love Nonni!"

How lovely! I've got some of that fabric that you used on the binding / brooch. I'll have to remember how great it looks with green gingham.
